Quotes attributable to Mitchell Shire Mayor Councillor Bill Chisholm

“There is a diverse range of different interests for land use in our rural areas,” he said.

“The Rural Land and Activities Review will inform Council on the next steps to take as we prepare for the future.

“We are visiting the shire’s small towns so we can work directly with people throughout the community. This is an important step for our community, and I look forward to hearing their thoughts and ideas.”
